Elliot and Boog are back in this fourth installment in the Open Season film series! During a round of campfire tales Boog (who has never been the bravest bear) gets even more spooked by a monster story that Elliot tells. Of course, Elliot always has a plan and decides to help Boog by ‘scaring the fear? out of him! Thus begins a journey of friendship and overcoming fear with tons of laughs along the way! This new movie is packed with laughs, beloved characters and heart,?Open Season: Scared Silly?is a must-own for the entire family!
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE) and Sony Pictures Animation have joined forces with the Ad Council, the U.S. Forest Service, the National Association of State Foresters, the National Forest Foundation (NFF) and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) to help raise awareness for Smokey Bear’s national wildfire prevention campaign, using #SmokeyBearHug. OPEN SEASON: SCARED SILLY stars Boog & Elliot received a hug from Smokey Bear this weekend for promoting campfire safety, kicking off a nation-wide program teaching youth from the Boys and Girls Club of America how to safely build, manage and put out a campfire.
For every Boys & Girls Club youth member participating, SPHE will donate a tree to be planted by the National Forest Foundation (NFF) to replace those lost during natural disasters such as wildfires, and insect and disease outbreaks.?
?Our national forests and grasslands are home to thousands of animals, from bears like Boog to deer like Elliot. They also provide clean water, clean air and opportunities for hiking, camping and playing in nature. Wildfires, insects and disease can negatively impact forest health, which is why we?re very grateful to SPHE for supporting reforestation efforts through our Trees for US program. Together, we can ensure our national forests and grasslands are healthy and vibrant for generations to come,? said Marcus Selig, Interim President at the NFF.
We are a huge camping family so not only do we love this movie but this is a great campaign to remind everyone of campfire safety. Audiences everywhere are encouraged to also participate in spreading awareness of campfire safety by posting their own fire safety photos using #SmokeyBearHug online.
